Roof Cleaning


I would like to express our appreciation and thanks for the stellar work performed recently during the palms spring maintenance program.

This was the best one so far and our residents have also expressed their overall satisfaction with the dryer vents, balconies, windows and grounds clean up. Thanks to Jason and Brett of Grime Fighters for keeping their crew sharp and focused, and at the same time paying attention to detail, of which the palms has many.

Hoping to work with all again in the future.

Roof Cleaning is not just about aesthetics

Mold, algae, lichen, and moss can eat away at your roof causing a need for premature replacement. Our roof cleaning professionals can remove that unsightly moss and algae growth, renewing your roof to its original appearance, without the use of damaging pressure washers.

We have the expertise required to do the job right. With our special roof cleaning process and solutions, your roof will look its best and be moss-free for years. Our proprietary cleaning solution saturates your shingles and kills the growth that degrades your roof while bringing it back to life. Our roof cleaning process includes a deep cleaning that will completely eradicate that harmful moss, algae, and lichen. With our cleaning process, you can get the most out of your roof while saving money in the long run.

We can also offer additional services, such as gutter cleaning or siding cleaning at the same time. Our professional superheroes know to take all of the appropriate precautions, such as using ladder standoffs to protect your gutters, and fall protection to work safely.

Grime Fighters Roof Cleaning provides strata and residential roof cleaning services to the cities of Vancouver, North Vancouver, West Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond, Delta, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Port Moody, Surrey, Langley, Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge and Abbotsford.

Why Choose Us?

Low pressure, chemical-based cleaning process

The first step of our process is to use a stiff, bristled brush to remove the bulk moss from the roof. Next we will clean the debris from all of the gutters. The final step involves the application of a proprietary roof cleaning chemical that works to kill the algae and mold spores.

We will not damage the shingles or roof surface

Because the cleaning process relies on chemical treatment to do the majority of the work, dangerous high-pressure methods are not used, eliminating the chances of damaging the roof.

Precautions are taken to avoid damage to surrounding plant life

We use landscaping tarps and plastic sheets to cover nearby plant, therefore minimizing their exposure to our roof cleaning chemicals.  Excessive rinsing is also used to dilute any additional runoff that may occur.

The Benefits

A properly performed low pressure, chemical-based roof cleaning will actually prolong the life of your roof by preventing algae and mold spores from “feeding” off of the roofing material.  Aside risking damage to your roof, pressure washing will only work to remove the surface debris from a roof surface.  A chemical-based cleaning solution will penetrate a roofing surface – killing the spores that lie within.

Restore the beauty to your home. Boost your property’s value by strengthening its aesthetic appeal with a newly cleaned roof. Particularly in the warm and moist climate of the Pacific Northwest, roof cleaning done every 8-10 years will be a valuable asset to your home.

Popular Questions

  • Does the cleaning void my roof’s warranty?

    Absolutely not. Our cleaning process is endorsed by all major shingle manufacturers and will not void your warranty.

  • Can I pressure wash my roof?

    Only if you want to risk voiding your roof’s warranty. Roof cleaning requires special expertise. Roofs are delicate and must be treated with the utmost care. The use of pressure washers on roofs can do more damage than good. It’s important not to pressure wash a roof, or do anything that will remove the shingle granules, as this may void the shingle warranty and will weather the roof away faster. Pressure washing is a surface clean only; it doesn’t really address growth issues. It simply spreads around the spores around making the issue worse, so that when it grows back, it grows back covering more area.

  • How are you able to safely access my roof while doing the cleaning?

    In order to provide a safe working environment it may be necessary to install temporary, or permanent, roof anchor solutions on your property. Grime Fighters can contract either one of those services.

  • Can you do the cleaning in heavy rainfall?

    No.  For best results, it is recommended to do the chemical portion of the cleaning during the dry summer months.
